Eli and Edye Broad’s museum is a great gift to the people of Los Angeles and all contemporary art lovers. The Broad was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler and fits in well with its neighbors Walt Disney Hall, the Los Angeles Cathedral, and MoCA among others. It is possible to spend an entire day appreciating all that this small section of downtown LA has to offer. There will be more on this in a future post. For now, here is just a brief preview of what lies in store at The Broad starting with the roomful of Takashi Murakami’s shown above.
The old joke about the difference between LA and yogurt clearly no longer applies (one has an active culture) and this wonderful museum is another reason that the city has become an art destination.
Details: Open Tuesday – Sunday. Admission is free but timed tickets available online are required: The Broad Tickets.
